@oranje Good - have more gigs on the books than I’vehad in a while, which makes me happy. New job is pretty even-keel, so far, though I’m sussing out the difficult people.
@ink_slinger it’s been a rough year that way.
@oranje You got someone who can refresh your resume? Sounds like it’s time.
@ink_slinger I’m sorry. I’ve been through a whole spate of deaths in the last year & it’s just no fun. It’s gotten so bad a had a scheduling conflict with 2 memorials this weekend.

@anthracite I used to love the fish tank one, though it just chewed up cpu cycles. Someone even made a hack to set it as your desktop, which was badass, for like 10 minutes.
@generica Yeah, it affected my whole week. I’ve read it a couple times.
@oranje I severely needed the exercise! I’m home now & rehydrating.
Here’s a wonderful blog post from an ex-Mefite about the meaning of community: http://middleclasstool.com/blog/2019/7/11/community
Cavers are my community & the closest thing I have to brothers & sisters.
Coffee time. Going to help a friend upgrade the living space he’s made available for another elderly, frail friend who had to leave his land in the country because he couldn’t live alone. No real family- cavers are his de facto family & he’s being cared for well by them in his last months. This is a strong community. This guy pretty much taught me mutli flash cave photography 25 years ago.
I don't know what this site is, but I'm flattered that they used one of my photos in their article, even though it's not even in the state they say it's in:
More pics from Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. Mostly shot black & whit film, which is off being developed
Big music listener, not much of a movie watcher. We watched Cool Hand Luke for the first time in years last night & I just caught that John Melloncamp totally ripped a line of dialogue from it for Scarecrow.
“Sorry, Luke - it’s just my job. I hope you understand.”
“Callin’ it your job don’t make it right, boss.”
